Summary: While the cd player is sleek and appears to be in wonderful condition it was broken. Not visibly broken but I guess it doesn't close enough to read any cd. In order for it to play you have to sit there and push it down to close enough. It clicks shut and all but refuses to work. I have ended up having to tape it closed just for it to play. Very disappointed in this purchase.
Summary: I give it 1 star, simply because I still like the looks of it, but that is all. The product arrived, we took it out the box, set it up ( connecting all the wires for the speakers to the stereo) and plugged it in... We thought maybe we did something wrong so we undid the wires and rewired it, but still nothing, no power. The stereo just never worked, not even a flicker of hope. It just did not worked at all. The power light never came on, nothing happened!
No hard feelings but sometimes electronics need to be tested before being shipped/sold to buyers...

Summary: The minute I took it out of the box and pushed the power button it didn't turn on. I read the manual and did every troubleshooting suggestion listed, but it still couldn't get it to turn on. The 800 number noted in the manual was disconnected, and the email address came back to me "undeliverable". I sent an email to Amazon who gave me the sellers contact information. I mailed it back and got an immediate refund.
Summary: While there is a mix of good and bad reviews on this product, I ignored the ones that indicate the unit would not play CDs. Those reviewers must be wrong, I reasoned to myself, I mean why would a company produce a product that so completely failed at its primary function. The other reviewers must be doing something wrong. My apologies to those other folks.
Summary: sounds very tinny and hallow- especially when playing jazz or classical music whereby one song covers many ranges of sound,pitch and depth. Save your money and buy a quality product, not this.
Summary: This was bought for my 4 year old son to replace an 8 year old Sony boom box type machine that was moved to a different room. It was intended to play CDs and occasionally radio at bedtime most nights. The price was good and it seemed like it would be adequate for a 4 year old, plus it looks pretty cool to a kid. It was easy to set up and it did initially work fairly well and it sounds OK for a cheap player.
